Wallace Lane Farm: Farmhouse

General

  • Quiet hillside farm site in west Cumbria with views to the sea
  • Coast, lakes, hill walks and mountain biking within 40 minutes' drive
  • Around five minutes' drive to Caldbeck for pub, cafés and shop

Blecogo… Red Dial… Theckthwaite Beck… There are some fine place names in this part of Cumbria and some fine spots to stop in, too. Wallace Lane Farm can't compete in the intriguing name stakes but it's certainly a winner on the fine spot front.

The views from this farm are spectacular: the Irish Sea, the Solway Firth, the first of the Galloway hills. Whatever you're looking at, and whichever parts of this fab area you're visiting, you'll likely appreciate the laundry and drying room as well as the hot showers in the heated washrooms.

Start the day by heading up to the farm for a fab breakfast of local produce (order in advance) and at the end of the day sit round a campfire or grill your bangers on a barbecue – both are welcome and there are two washing-up areas for pots and pans.

It's just over five minutes' drive from the farm to Caldbeck, which has a pub with food and two cafés as well as a shop for supplies. Perhaps you could pick up a picnic and wander through the village along the banks of the Caldew river?

If you're into fishing, day permits are available on many of the rivers and streams of the surrounding area; the Wampool, Waver and Ellen are favourites for those seeking trout and salmon.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    The site is very easy to find. You are welcomed by a member of the wonderful staff and directed to a level pitch with nicely cut grass surrounding it and it is a very good size. All the amenities are spotlessly clean as is the whole campsite. There are excellent and well signed dog walks. We will certainly return here soon, it was one of the most relaxing and enjoyable holidays i have had for a long time.

    Not exactly a dislike against Wallace Farm as everything was great just a small tip for anyone stopping take fly spray.. As expected in countryside lots of flies and when windows or doors open because it's warm the little beggers get everywhere... Again this isn't a dislike for the farm they were great...

Local attractions

Sea fishing without a boat can be tried from the banks of the Solway Firth at Port Carlisle (half an hour by car); alternatively try your hand on the waters of Bassenthwaite lake, 25 minutes away.

Bassenthwaite is a bumper spot for lake walks and if you're in need of fortification, there's a distillery at the northern end doing tours and tastings. If you're more of a high mountains type, paths up Skiddaw and Grisedale Pike start half an hour from the site. A real peak-bagger could rack up two national parks in a day round here; routes up Cross Fell, jewel of the North Pennines, start an hour away.

Mountain bikers make for Whinlatter Forest Park (40 minutes) to hire wheels and try the UK's longest purpose-built tracks; the park's also popular with those seeking treetop thrills on the high ropes. It's a good place to test your mettle before scrambling the via ferrata cableway at Honister Slate Mine, an hour away.

For days down at lake level, you can be sailing, rowing or taking a boat cruise to the little islands on Derwentwater within half an hour; Ambleside, at the top of Lake Windermere with its steamers and watersports, is an hour's journey by car. To see some cracking coastline, it's half an hour to Bowness-on-Solway and Mayport, both good for nature-filled walks and Roman history.
